Senior Writing Experience

Some math majors will satisfy the college’s senior writing requirement by taking the senior writing seminar, MTH 487. In 2018-2019, there will be one offering in the fall, limited to eight students.

The fall offering of MTH 487 will be led by Professor Tønnesen-Friedman and focused around linear algebra. It will use MTH 340 as its springboard. Accordingly, MTH 340 is a prerequisite.

Other math majors will satisfy the college’s senior writing requirement by doing a one-term thesis (MTH 497). One-term thesis availability is often limited and subject to staffing concerns.

Students planning on applying for honors in mathematics will satisfy the WS requirement with a two-term honors thesis (MTH 498-99).

Rising math-major seniors will get an e-mail from the Chair by the end of the winter term of their junior year, listing the WS possibilities available and asking for a ranking of preferences of the options.
